Growing emphasis on eco-friendly products
The growing emphasis on eco-friendly products is expected to drive the paper cups market in the forecast period. The rising concerns over the use of plastic and its environmental impacts have been trending in the food & beverages industry. Various initiatives have been taken on the global level by multinational food chains and governments to reduce the use of plastic for a sustainable future. For instance, countries like U.S and France have already banned the use of single-use plastic cups.

It is predicted that using recycled paper cups can save more than 200 million trees worldwide.
Presence of cheaper substitutes
The presence of cheaper substitutes is responsible for restraining the growth of the paper cups market in the forecast period. The variety of disposable cups available in the market, such as foam, plastic and glass cups are comparatively cheaper than plastic cups, posing a major threat to the growth of the global paper cups market.
The paper cups are responsible for vulnerable environmental impact. There are billions of trees are cut to manufacture paper for paper cups, which emits a large amount of CO2 into the atmosphere. Moreover, paper cups are difficult to recycle due to the use of the plastic coating.

For instance, in 2021- Georgia-Pacific has started accepting mixed paper bales that contain single-use polyethylene-coated paper cups at its recycled paper mills. The development follows a partnership with the Foodservice Packaging Institute and collaboration with the NextGen Consortium, an initiative led by Closed Loop Partners with founding partners McDonald's and Starbucks to help create opportunities for paper cup recycling.
COVID-19 Impact Analysis
Due to the pandemic, stakeholders across the paper cups industry have seen a notable impact as all the production work, factories and other activities were closed. As a result, production was hindered by halts and supply chain disruption globally. After the pandemic, the governments still impose various restrictions, such as working with half the workforce and fewer operating hours hindering the production cycle of the market.
On the other hand, demand for paper cups has seen a positive demand during the outbreak. Leading countries, including U.S and Canada have witnessed a sharp rise in the adoption of single-use disposable items. The use of reusable cups has been minimized in commercial and residential places as a preventive step from the outbreak. Popular food companies like McDonald's recommend using disposable food-service items to minimize the transmission risk through food-service items. The pandemic has forced leading chains, including Starbucks and Dunkin, to stop using reusable mugs brought by the customers for more than a year, which has created a massive demand for paper cups.
